Report from the Super Session and Final results…

With Tweets and Facebook posts bouncing around about a huge sandstorm and nuclear winds in the Sinai, riders prepared for the second day of competition at the Dahab Watersports Festival. Greeted by winds of 30-35 knots, the fleet assembled at Club Dahab for the skippers meeting. Not everyone from the first day of competition could attend, so a Super Session was planned to make the most of the howling winds.

Third Place goes to Loick Spicher

The plan was simple: 15 minutes, all the riders on the water and the best move takes the win. What followed was a quarter of an hour of non-stop action as the riders tried to best each other with the biggest moves possible. Judged by Colin ‘Whippy’ Dixon, World Champion Sarah-Quita Offringa and fellow PWA freestylers Laure Treboux and Arriane Aukes, the results were announced on the beach.

Adam Sims, Super Session Winner

Taking the win was Adam Sims with a clean One-Handed Burner, followed in joint second by Jamie Drummond (One-Handed Ponch) and Russian sailor Vova with an Air Funnell. It was the turn of the ladies and local sailors next. Right on the buzzer, Sarah-Quita Offringa nailed a super-clean Double Spock, backing it up with a super clean Switch Kono – guaranteeing the win straight away! Local sailor Mo threw a radical Burner to take second place and Swiss sailor Laure Treboux slid through a sick Shove-It Spock for Third place.
